Magazines were a temporary diversion in pre-internet times.

Hey Gang! This episode of We Have a Technical is a special Ottawa industrial showcase, specifically featuring Encephalon, Wychdoktor and Apirorism, all of whom are playing this week at AFTERMATH in Toronto! We were kind of burnt out and full of Indian food when we recorded this one, so please excuse our general dopeyness, it’s been a real whirlwind around here. As always, we encourage you to subscribe and review via iTunes, download directly or stream from the widget below. That’s it friends, see you in Toronto for AFTERMATH this week!

0:00: As with every episode, our theme music is “Black Cross (Dead When I Found Her Remix)” by ∆AIMON, available from Artoffact records.
0:40: DL Volt 9000’s Negativland prank on us here, but more importantly check their actual music.
4:18: Seriously, the saga of the Von Erich family reads like something that was cut from a Cormac McCarthy novel for being too much of a downer.
6:32: Yeah. It’s not quite as murderous as “Pursuit” but this could be becoming a trend.
11:27: Check our big love-fest for The Transhuman Condition from a few years back.
17:40: Check Bruce Mazlish’s The Fourth Discontinuity for an excellent account of how histories of technology and subjectivity have informed one another.
19:50: We swear, we swear, we swear we didn’t add an audio glitch to the very important phrase “two weeks”; it happened naturally. WE’RE AS SCARED AS YOU.
20:18: Yahtzee knows the score.
21:05: Alex was actually thinking of Colliers. Anything that Mr. Burns is angling for a feature in definitely qualifies as a dad magazine.
26:50: Here’s our review of the Wychdoktor record.
35:00: Add Bruce and/or Alex on Bandcamp if yr so inclined.
35:20: Here’s our Apriorism review.
46:50: Hop on over to Tympanik’s shop and get all yr technoid and IDM needs sated at a 50% off slashed rate!
47:08: Talking To Ghosts is well worth a subscription and some time on your commute.
47:50: We failed to mention it in the podcast, but please, for the love of god, don’t tell Matt about this ongoing rib. He needs to wise up on his own.
48:35: Check the Antigen Shift stream, the Aftermath tape, FLA remix review, and Present Moment write-up.
49:39: Jorge Luis Borges is to Bruce what Jack Kirby is to Alex, at least in ingenuity if not hero worship.
